Carlisle School Spring Art Exhibit | Black Dogs Project

Black Dogs Project by Fred Levy

Black Dogs by Fred Levy
March 4 through April 25, 2014

Artist Statement: This project started through a conversation at the dog park about how black dogs have a harder time getting adopted than other dogs. This gave me an idea for a challenge in my photography to try something unique by photographing black dogs in my studio against a black background. People who own black dogs know how difficult it can be to photograph in any condition, so I decided to push myself for this project. It has turned into a even bigger, more important project then just a photographic project. It now has become part of a larger conversation on the issue of black dogs that get overlooked at animal shelters. This project started out of a simple need to push my photographic skills but has become a much more meaningful project.
